I decided to put this out for a number of reasons but mainly it's a big improvement as to what circulates. The main reason being Will's reels are in prime condition and have never had to be baked over a number of times. The exact lineage of all the 4/71 FE reels are still a mystery so perhaps we will really never know the whole story BUT some low gen reels @ 7.5 ips. have survived in one piece and these are some of them.. According to the story from Wilson and Pat Lee, Peter Kafer and Bill Gadsden "purchased" the supposed masters from a guy named Buddy Miller(now a country musician) and brought them up to the Northwest for them to copy back in 1973. Will's are 7.5 ips. and Pat's are 3.3/4 ips. Nobody for sure knows exactly which were masters since Buddy decided to keep a few for himself which is truly the crux of the mystery or if even Buddy had masters himself. I realize in some circles this is considered heresy but it's true and until Buddy comes forward and flat out states he had masters this should be considered as a possibility. We can only now just listen carefully and try to figure it out that way.. Anyhow please enjoy!
Big Thanks to Matt. Wonderful!!
